Episode Summary

Pennsylvania Miners Story
Told from the miners' own perspective, the film reveals new aspects to their extraordinary experience and, for the first time, takes viewers inside the mine (shot in real mines and stunningly recreated on a soundstage) to show the life-threatening dangers and physical limitations the men faced for 77 hours as they waited for rescue. The movie was shot in many of the actual locations in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, including scenes at the actual Quecreek mine. Emmy-winning David Frankel directs from a script by Elwood Reid.moreless
